Martial God Conqueror - Chapter 16
An Elf-like Girl
With a voice as cold as ever, the lady’s figure swayed and instantly disappeared from Du Shaofu’s sight.
"Didn’t you know I don't know how to fly? Just bring me along, why would you leave me here?”
Du Shaofu was rendered speechless. He dared not wander around recklessly, not to mention there’s that poison dan he swallowed. After experiencing days of demonic beast attacks, he gained an understanding of the Wild Beast Mountains. This area was considered as the mountains outer edge and yet the dangers were fatal enough for him. He shuddered just imagining the level of danger that lies within the deeper parts.
Suddenly, Du Shaofu heard something. His eyes instantly looked towards the bushes on the side.
The bushes shook with low hum, signalling that a beast was coming out from it. Under Du Shaofu’s nervous eyes, five three feet tall beasts rushed out from the bushes.
The ground shook, and as the five huge beasts rushed out, the momentum swept towards Du Shaofu.
Three of them were dark as ink with their manes erect. With body reaching ten feet long and two long fang-like ivory gworing on their snout that glinted dangerously, it would undoubtly send shivers for those who were looking at them.
"Mountainbore demon hogs!"
Du Shaofu’s face instantly changed. Mountainbore demon hogs were a Xiantian level demonic beast. An adult mountainbore demon hog was at Xiantian realm upon birth and it was definitely not weaker than the scale-armored beast earlier.
Going against one scale-armored beast had taken every effort that he had. But now that he was going to defend against five mountainbore demon hogs running straight at him, Du Shaofu’s feelings at this moment couldn't be imagined. The demon hog at the very front was closing in so fast on him.
"Raging Storm Waves Palm!"
Due to the demon hog at the front reaching him, he had no time to hesitate. Du Shaofu released Raging Storm Waves Palm and struck against the first incoming demon hog but at the same time the demon hog’s body emitted a wave of light and released the beasts’ xuanqi.
The mountainbore demon hog that collided with his palm flew, but Du Shaofu did not fare any better. He barely managed to cope when dealing with the scale-armored beast, but now that he was against something that was known for its outrageous and powerful physique like the demon hog, Du Shaofu’s body immediately bounced back and he fell heavily on the ground, blood dripping from the corner of his mouth.
The demon hog that was hit by Du Shaofu fell to the ground while issuing a piercing scream but instantly got back on its feet.
The remaining four demon hogs had their jaws wide open that snapped away at Du Shaofu with their fangs glinting coldly. Du Shaofu’s situation was unfavorable, with his pale face and little strength remaining. One mountainbore demon hog was already more than he could handle, but four…
*Xiu Xiu Xiu Xiu!*
In this split second time, something came whistling through the wind. A few lightning-fast streaks swept through the group of demon hogs. As if possessing eyes, each of the arrows pierced right between the eyebrow of the four mountainbore demon hogs. Their life seeped away as they tumbled down before they could even issue any sound.
At the same time, another streak of light aimed at the Mountainbore Demon Hog that got back up after being hit by Du Shaofu, just when it was about to attack, an arrow arrives piercing in between its eyebrow, and it tumbled back down to the ground.
This sudden change let Duo Shaofu breath a sigh of relief, thinking that it would be the white-clothed lady returning.
However, when his eyes fell on the bodies of the Mountainbore Demon Hogs, Du Shaofu was a little shocked. All five demon hogs died from the arrows piercing through their eyebrows, the end of the arrows were made with special feathers, which indicated that these were customized arrows.
Five Xiantian mountainbore demon hogs culled by five lethal arrows. Neat and swift as lightning but not the white-clothed lady’s style.
When the five demon hogs fell to the ground, and while Du Shaofu was still surprised, a shadow jumped out from the inner part of the mountains.
The figure belonged to a girl who wore tight-fitting green clothes, and was about sixteen to seventeen years of age from her appearance. Her eyebrows were sd smooth as jade, skin fair as snow and the thousand strands of her black hair gathered together in a simple knot. She was holding a delicate bow coupled with an exquisite face and tall figure, exuding a spiritual aura that one could not help but to think of elves. This girl was exactly like an elf.
Appearing in front of Du Shaofu, her eyes swept past casually. Her water-like clear eyes seemed friendly, but in truth borders people a thousand miles away dispelling any thoughts of getting close, especially when being stared at by those eyes that seem to see through everything.
Pulling out a dagger, the girl in green clothes squatted down next to the mountainbore demon hogs and started cutting off the fang-like ivory from their snouts. Her snowy-white slender fingers with a trace of pink held the sharp dagger, cutting off the fang-like ivory as if cutting tofu. The girl’s every move was fluid and graceful with her black hair floating in the breeze. Her slender limbs elegant and refined.
After a moment, the girl finished collecting all the fang-like ivories. Finally getting up and looked at Du Shaofu who managed to stand up. Frowning, she said, “With this level of strength yet dares to venture into Wild Beast Mountains? If you don’t want to die it is best if you leave now. The current situation inside is not some place you can enter.”
Although her tone was cold, her voice was clear and distinctive. In a blink, the girl was gone.
"Such speed, such strength."
Licking the corner of his lips and tasting the slight sweetness of his blood, Du Shaofu muttered to himself. The girl does not seem that old but she must very strong. Being able to kill five mountainbore demon hogs that easily was not something that an average person could do.
"Looks like your luck is pretty good since you are still alive."
The cold words announced the return of the lady as she silently appeared in front of Du Shaofu.
"I almost died."
Du Shaofu felt extremely wronged or perhaps sulky was a better word. If not for that girl’s timely appearance, his little life was probably gone.
"Interesting, it’s getting interesting. I did not expect the people from that clan will be here.
"Her talent’s not low, there should be someone with her. Otherwise, they will not let such talents into the depths of Wild Beast Mountain.
Boy, I'll take you to see some excitement, how about it?”
The lady turned over, and she gazed upon Du Shaofu.
“Predecessor, Big Sister, my interest in this so-called excitement are not that strong. You’re a strong warrior, you do not have to eat but I haven’t eaten anything for a day and night and… gululu gululu..." Du Shaofu’s sentence had yet to finish when his stomach let out a rumbling sound, obviously a sound of starvation.
In the path of cultivation, forgoing food for ten days up to half a month was normal. It was rumored that when one reaches a certain realm, the body can be nourished with xuanqi and eating was no longer necessary.
However, neither the first nor the second method is applicable on the current Du Shaofu.
The white-clothed lady seemed to have truly forgotten about this matter. She at Du Shaofu from the corner of her eye, and said, “You can go and look for something to eat now.”
